Fresh Tomatoes from Mexico: Final Phase of Antidumping Investigation

The International Trade Commission (ITC) announced they have scheduled the final phase of the antidumping duty (AD) investigation for fresh tomatoes from Mexico.

The final phase is being scheduled because the Department of Commerce (DOC) preliminarily found evidence of injury to U.S. producers by imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico being sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV).

Tomatoes imported from Mexico covered by this investigation are classified in subheading 0702 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) depending on the season of importation.

The final phase of this investigation was resumed on May 7, 2019.  A hearing will be held September 19, 2019.  Prehearing briefs are due by September 10, 2019 and posthearing briefs by September 26, 2019, with final comments due by October 21, 2019.
